Seen the demo but is HD-DVD pq really that much better?
I've seen the toshiba demonstrations on their players at BB/FS. When i saw charlie & chocolate factory hd-dvd @ costco on a 57" sharp aquos, i wasn't overly impressed. i watched several scenes. i couldn't notice any significant difference. was it just the movie? or do i need to see one in the proper environment, etc?
I have a 56" panny lcd projection at home. i have the expressvu hd package, and pretty well strictly watch HD. i rarely rarely rarely go outside of the 800-850 channels.
that being said, after watching my old 4:3 sony 41" projection tv for 13 years, i find that regular dvd quality looks fantastic to me. am i going to notice a substantial difference in picture quality going with an hd-dvd player? i am kinda toying with the idea of picking up one of the 360 add-on units this weekend just to try it out. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
(ps the 360 isn't mine, its the roommates, so while it'd be cheaper right now, in the long run it won't end up costing me anymore than buying a toshiba stand-alone unit.)
pps, anyone who has watched a number of titles, any suggestions on what will really show off the improvement would be appreciated.
